I think the trick here is that they don't mention that the daughter has a history of Type 1 DM, so she has no reason to be taking insulin at all. She's definitely receiving insulin, but we don't have any history implying she's a type 1 diabetic. That, combined with the fact that there have been multiple episodes like this one, favors that the mother is giving the daughter insulin when she doesn't need it.
C-peptide is produce by endogenous insulin, but is not part of exogenous insulin. She has elevated insulin, with low C-peptide, so she is receiving too much exogenous insulin. A history of recurrent episodes this year implies a behavioral issue; Factitious disorder imposed on another (also called Munchausen syndrome by proxy).
That's so infuriating I stared at this question for 20 minutes thinking I did something wrong
lol..my math never worked either. I also just chose the closest number. also, screw this question author for doing that.
this is why you never waste 7 minutes on a question.... because of shit like this
Why the FUCK did they not just give us a clearance of 0.1 if they're going to fuckin round it anyways...
in ur maths, why did u put 24h/1day and not 1day/24h? if the given Cl was 0.09L/hr/kg. I know it just is a math question, but i´d appreciate if someone could explain it.
LMAO games NBME plays
magic math!!!!! how TF r we supposed to know when they round and when they don't like wtf im so pissed someone please tell me step isn't like this...with such precise decimal answers and a calculator fxn you would assume they wanted an actual answer!
OMG, I've got the 25.92 mg/kg/day, which isn't any of the answer choices listed. So I chose the D 51.8, because 51.8 is double of 25.9......I thought I must have make a mistake during the calculation ......
They purposely did that so if you made a mistake with your conversion like I did, you might end up with 2.5 which was one of the answer choices. SMH
I did well, but I thought that my mistake was something to do with the conversion and end up choosing 2.5 because it is similar to 25.92
The fact that we pay these people 60 dollars a pop for poorly formatted and written exams boggles my mind, and yet here I am, about to buy Form 24
Not only do you feel like you're doing sth wrong but then that feeling stays for other questions. sucks so baad
'here.. take 50mg of vyvanse.. I just rounded it up from 30.. dw you'll be fine' (totally doing this with my patients 8-))
I was so close to picking 2.5 because I thought I did a conversion error. 5 minutes later and still didn't feel comfortable picking 28.8😡
It’s just canker sores, they come and go. I think in herpes the gingivostomatitis really only happens when you first get infected. After that you just get recurrent cold sores.
Herpes zoster is not the same as herpes simplex virus.
you would see dermatome rash in zoster
cf) Just in case someone wanted to know the causative organism of aphthous ulcers
:The precise cause of canker sores remains unclear, though researchers suspect that a combination of factors contributes to outbreaks, even in the same person.
Unlike cold sores, canker sores are not associated with herpes virus infections.
Herpes Zoster doesnt cause gingivostomatitis. Herpengina can cause vesicular lesion in mouth but happens to children in summer season by entero virus
I'm wondering if this could be a mild case of Behcet syndrome without genital involvement
It sure can be Behcet or Pemphigus if the q provides us with more info. Canker sores just come and go for years with unclear mechanism. Also herpes zoster is shingles by VZV, not HSV1.
Most pictures on google show herpangina being present on the hard palate/throat, while aphthous ulcers are commonly on the lower lip. I think his lack of genital lesions are pointing us away from herpangina.
The only thing I can think of is that HIV is a (+)-sense single-stranded RNA virus that relies on an RNA dependent DNA polymerase (reverse transcriptase) to synthesize DNA.
according to [medbullets link](https://step1.medbullets.com/step1-microbiology/104196/rna-viruses_) ns ss RNA must carry RNA dependent RNA polymerase (so that is out).
also, according to medbullets there are very few ds RNA viruses, so "most likely" will be ss. Also, RNA-dependent DNA polymerase = Reverse Transcriptase. Since HIV is a ss ps RNA virus with RT, they've described an HIV cousin. not sure beyond this.
Can’t think of any retroviruses outside of HIV and HTLV and they’re both +ssRNA
